--disable-symbol-hiding not working anymore? #2830
when configuring curl with "--disable-symbol-hiding" it used to expose the functions
"Curl_base64_encode" and "Curl_base64_decode"
nm ./lib/.libs/libcurl.so | grep encode
 | 68028| 72|FUNC |GLOB |0 |12 |Curl_base64_encode
Somewhere along the way this behaviour changed and with the current version 7.61.0 they are no longer exposed and "nm" command shows that they are classified as "LOCL".
